Understanding Neck Pain
People often poke fun about other people or things being “a pain in the neck”, but if you or somebody you know is struggling with neck pain, you know it’s no laughing matter.
About one out of 10 of all people in the USA has experienced neck pain at some time in their lives. And 15.1% of people in the USA said neck pain was their most common pain problem.
Neck Pain Described.
Neck pain is defined as any form of pain that occurs from the top of your shoulders to the bottom of your head. Symptoms could be mild to severe and often limit the range of motion of your head, shoulders and upper body.
Neck pain is reported more often by women than men, and most individuals with neck pain tend to be between the ages of eighteen to 64. The average age for neck pain patients is forty nine and a half years old.
Reasons For Neck Pain.
One of the most common causes of neck pain is aging. As you get older you are more likely to have increased deterioration on the vertebrae, discs and nerves in your spine, often resulting in neck pain.
One more common cause of neck pain is recurring motion injuries. If you job requires you to hold your head at the same angle for a long period of time, this can increase your risk of developing neck pain. Stress and anxiety is also a contributing factor in lots of cases of neck pain.
Like any form of pain, neck pain is nature’s way of informing you that something is not right within your body. Pain indicates that the natural balance has been disturbed and that something is out of whack.
Neck Pain Treatment All-natural Solutions.
Because neck pain tends to originate in the spinal column, one of the most effective neck pain treatments is gentle, non-surgical spinal decompression treatment.
Our spinal disc experts focus in using natural, holistic techniques that can return the spine to its original position. This can relieve the pressures on the discs, nerves and vertebrae that can lead to neck pain.
Fast, Effective Neck Pain Treatment.
The majority of patients can experience quick relief from neck pain and other symptoms with just a few gentle sessions. Plus, because we treat the causes of neck pain, instead of masking them with drugs or using invasive treatments like surgeries, once the pain is gone, it typically won’t return unless something else goes out of balance within the body.
Neck pain is among the absolute most bothersome and annoying forms of pain you can experience. That’s because it can affect your ability to move naturally and can easily spread to other portion of the body, such as the shoulders and back.
